Kinnosuke "Kin-chan" Ikezawa was in love with Kotoko Aihara until he met Christine Robbins. He was never accepted into a college, so he finished his senior year and started working. Kin-chan, as called by his friends, starts working at the college Kotoko goes to. He works in the cafeteria who watches over Kotoko and Naoki Irie (who decided to go to the same school). 


Kinnosuke has black hair that is put into a a tall quif and black eyes.


Kinnosuke is an optimist man who is always happy. He has crazy ideas about everything. He is also very devoted to anything he puts his mind to, and never backs down from a challenge.




Aihara Kotoko

In pretty much the entire anime Kin solely devoted himself to Kotoko. Ever since high school he's been in a one sided love with her, and keeps on all the way through getting past college ( for her, as he never made it to college). Eventually he proposes, wanting to marry the love of his life, but even though in the end Kotoko ends up marrying Irie Naoki, they still remain good close friends.
